Somebody has to write about Martin O’Malley. He’s a serious person, with serious things to say, and it’s a travesty that he hasn’t gotten more coverage.-- Washington Post
Danielle Allen writing in today's Washington Post says it's time to take a second look at Democratic Presidential candidate Martin O'Malley. I agree, although I have already taken a third and fourth look, and seem to be more impressed each time.
I especially like O'Malley's plan to concentrate on infrastructure in the cities as a way to both restructure and rebuild our economy. This is not a time to put government on life support, as the Republicans would do. And this is not the time to raise taxes on the middle class.
Instead, this is the time to enact a bold economic stimulus program which will be designed to create good-paying jobs, putting money into people's pockets and then into the economy, while building new roads, bridges, and other needed infrastructure.
O'Malley's concept is a simple one, yet convincing. While no single program can assure economic recovery, O'Malley's proposal to rebuild our cities while strengthening our economy is a needed linchpin in an overall economic recovery policy which will put America's families back on the path to prosperity.
Time to take a second look at O'Malley? Indeed.
